Subject: Uh-huh, it is boring but...
It is rather boring hearing only one side of the conversation and all the uh-huhs, but hearing Roosevelt tell about Japan's conditions for peace (US leaving Guam, Midway, Pearl Harbor...) makes this an important historical "document."

Hello?

Very brief and useless conversation between FDR and Cordell Hull. Roosevelt gets some comments in, but it's mostly yup, uh-huh, right... Boh-ring!
